Massage is a wonderful way to express parents’ love and care for the babies. Infant massage can soothe the baby and help her to sleep.
Baby massage is gentle, rhythmic stroking of your baby’s body with your hands. Mother can use oils or a moisturizer to help your hand to glide smoothly over your baby’s skin.
Mothers can gently manipulate your baby’s ankles, wrists and fingers. Or mothers can stroke your baby’s back.
Mother can talk softly, hum or sing to your baby while you are massaging.
The smoothing stroke of mother’s hands stimulates the production of feel-good hormone in mother, your infant and even your husband if he is watching.
Baby massage brings a lot of advantages to the baby. Massage may help baby to develop mentally, socially and physically; cry less and sleep better. Besides, baby massage can also improve parents’ mood.
